Clever Cats: 3 years plus


Clever Cats

Within this group the staff ratio is one adult to eight children, the children in the group are aged between approximately three years to five years of age. The children in this group work on the foundation stage which is the national curriculum for children from birth to the end of the school reception year.

The room is divided into sections including a book corner, role play area, messy play area and construction.

The children are offered free play sessions and structured activities are planned for each day, such as cooking and investigation opportunities.These are closely monitored and each child is encouraged to reach their full potential at their own pace. Outdoor play provides opportunities to develop their gross motor skills, spatial awareness and problem solving skills. We like to take the children out through the seasons to experience all types of weather.

During the course of the day the children have quiet periods for story and circle times, also outdoor play particularly in the summer when the garden is in constant use.

Each child compiles a folder of work to enable monitoring of their developing skills, along with observations made by their key person.
